About Bunnamagoo

Bunnamagoo Estate wines are the outcome of a long-standing interest on the part of the Paspaley family in artisinal wine-making. The focus is on individual traditionally-made wines applying the same sort of discrimination and patience that brought them success with their pearls.

The historic homestead and 5,000 acres of prime grazing land at the Bunnamagoo Estate lie between Bathurst and Oberon; the other Paspaley vineyard is at Eurunderee, in the Mudgee district, 200 kilometres away. This Central Tablelands area of New South Wales was chosen as the site for some of the earliest vineyards in the colony including the first plantings of chardonnay by Adam Roth in 1858 on land which now forms part of the Eurunderee vineyard. It is hardly surprising that the area has found its place among the best wine regions of Australia and was chosen as the site of the Bunnamagoo winery and cellar door.

The Bunnamagoo vineyard at Rockley has that rarity in Australia: a genuinely cool climate. Its elevation of 880 metres makes it regularly colder than Tasmania. The vines have a long and beneficial period of winter dormancy followed by generally dry summers with long hot days and cool nights ensuring even ripening of the fruit. Its soils are deep volcanic basalts. The conditions bring great complexity to the wine. Cold weather clarifies and formalizes the attributes of a vintage, making subtleties more elegant and penetrating, while warmth produces generosity, roundness and openness. The combination of these qualities results in truly memorable wine.

The Eurunderee vineyard at Mudgee lies on rolling slopes above the Cudgegong River. Warmth arrives sooner in the year but there is still a subtle structure to the wines originating there due to heavy inland frosts in much of the season and cool summer nights. There is a range of soils underlaid by limestone and ample subterranean water. There are alluvial sandy loams on the lower slopes and higher up there are classic red earths derived from a shale base.

Bunnamagoo Wines is producing wines that bring highly pleasing nuances into the Australian market. While the wine-maker has followed the meticulous methods and judgements of European artisans, local conditions mean the results are without direct equivalents in other countries.
